Hey There, Using Dedicated server with
- x2 Quad Core Xeon 5600 w/ 12 Gb RAM, and 1Tb Sata HD. Running Centos 5.5
VBox VM: VBox machine running with
- Centos 5.5, 1 Core, 1024 MB RAM, SATA, 20 Gb Growing or Fixed.
Symptoms: VM running tickety boo, vrdp view pukes out error (See attached) Able to hit enter to get to login, and the server freezes. If logged in at the time, then able to run one command then freezes. If left alone, like in top, then it runs for a while and chokes.
Tried 3.2.4 but got all kinds of errors relating to Network. Didn't want to cross that bridge so I went back to 3.2.2
Errors seem related to Hard Drive inaccessibility. But not able to pin it down. I have 10 sessions of the same server running (for testing) and they stay alive. Happens when idle, or being used. Not Predicatable.
Checked vbox.log and no info Checked Dmesg and no info Checked dmesg on VM and no info
VBoxManage controlvm poweroff
results are: 0%...10%...20%... and freezes. Need to Ctrl C and kill pid
Restart and the VM machine will be fine for a while. Predictable that it will happen again.
